1 pm lunch and the restaurant was empty. We should have known better than to be seated. The tuna on the seafood skewer was inedible, s few days too old. The prawn pasta with chile sauce was flavourless. And the garden salad had too much vinegar.

This is one of my favourite Portuguese restaurants in St Helier. We had a excellent Xmas dinner here the other evening, wonderful tasty massive chunks of perfectly cooked beef on our espetadas, with plenty of sides of chips, well seasoned rice and milo. Service & value was also very good. Can't wait to return.

Without doubt the best Madeiran/Portuguese establishment in the Channel Islands . The espetadas are brilliant and taste just as good as those we have had on our trips to Madeira . My wife had the cataplana and next time I will have this ....delicious . In fact i could eat one now !!! Great staff and a lovely atmosphere .

I had a lovely lunch with 2 Portuguese friends. I chose Mano's because it serves excellent Portuguese food. We had a lovely meal. As it was Christmas time Luxuty Crackers were provided on the table, which made it even more nice.

This has long been my favourite restaurant, not only for the incredible food, but the amazing service too. Never once have I been disappointed; the food has never been less than absolutely beautiful, and the table service is excellent. The friendly staff will make you feel welcome and at home, they will cater to your every request, and they will... More

Family outings this restaurant is spot on . Very good choice mostly European with many Portugese dishes. Quality food served professionally and a very fair price. Fish dishes superb and I didn't need a steak knife for my enormous Beef fillet. Will become a regular here. Wine and beer very fair price too.
